Drs. Rosalie Anderson and Phil Bucolo participated in Power Ties which is a career awareness program that connects professional from various career backgrounds with 8th grade students at area New Orleans public schools to talk about career readiness and business etiquette. The project is overseen by the Young Leadership Council (YLC). Drs. Anderson and Bucolo hosted Samuel J. Green Charter School on March 2nd and Langston Hughes Academy on April 6th from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. They worked with the students by talking to them about careers in science and conducted an exercise physiology module with them. Jania Zenon (ENVB '20) assisted with both sessions. The group enjoyed pizza in the Palm Court (provided by YLC) which was followed with a tour of the campus.
